Okay so I re-re-re-re-injured my left knee. It's been scoped 2x but has known ligament damage to the tune of a significantly stretched ACL, and cist/scar tissue in the LCL. I tore the scar tissue (we think) and badly sprained the rest of the knee. Right now I'm back in my Breg post-op brace that is ankle to thigh with limited flexion (up to 90° already yay!). Problem is I need a light weight heavy duty brace that I can at least start with barn work in.
I've got the Breg Women's X2K for my right knee and it's great, not so great to ride in, but that may be a while anyway. Problem is that it's contoured for the right knee, and I never got a brace for my left knee which is re-damaged. Does anyone have one that they'd be willing to sell? Used is fine obviously. Usually they are covered by insurance but my insurance sucks, so I'd just prefer to buy one used.
I'm a size medium LEFT knee and need either one of the DonJoy Defiance/4titude or the Breg Women's X2K (or some variation thereof). I don't need to ride in it - it's going to be a while til I can ride - but do need this so that I can get out of the full leg brace I'm in now when I'm able to move around more. Even the DonJoy Fource brace would work too. Really I just need something that's lightweight but heavy duty so thought I'd ask to see if anyone has one they don't use anymore. I'm looking on eBay but there are tons of large ones which will be too **** big.
Here's a pic of a few examples:
Thanks!!! Feel free to post back or PM me if you have one you're interested in selling!!!
I'm also interested in ideas for a brace that I CAN ride in. To start I'll use the bigger brace for safety reasons, but once I'm ready to actually ride/show I need something that will not interfere with riding, but will provide adequate protection should I fall off to prevent serious torque on the knee. Was looking at a Knapp wraparound w/hinges because I've used one before on my right knee and it would need to fit OVER show breeches/tall boot. Any ideas are greatly appreciated! Thanks!
